Nintendo won't be handing out larger 64GB Switch cartridges to external developers until at least 2019, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal.
As it stands, the biggest Switch cartridges can hold 32GB of data, so quite a bit less than the 50GB capacity of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One's Blu-ray discs.
The WSJ explains that Nintendo had initially planned to make the 64GB carts available during the second half of 2018, but has been forced to move that date due to technical issues.
It's a delay that will no doubt disappoint devs who've been waiting to bring chunkier games to the handheld hybrid, as right now bigger physical releases often require additional downloads.
Of course, the Switch's internal memory can be easily expanded with a microSD card, but bigger carts would give owners more room to maneuver when it comes to making use of the console's 32GB internal storage.
